Sure, that's true, applications should be ported to Gstreamer 1.0. I asked
upstream about that some weeks ago but didn't got a reply until today. They are
on the way porting to Gstreamer 1.0 - that's good news. I'm not sure if there
will be a version before the jessie freeze as upstream development is quite slow.
I think it's pretty important to have at least subtitleeditor 0.41 in jessie as
the current version in testing is from 2009. I'm just a little worried that I'll
stuck with this version if I don't move my feet now and help to get gstreamermm
(0.10 and/or 1.0) out of experimental. I'll also help upstream to get their port
ready but that would also need gstreamermm in testing.

I think it's only useful if there is no ported version of subtitleeditor.
Letting it disappear is only possible if subtitleeditor is ported I'd say.

Yes, It would be better to invest time in the gstreamermm 1.0 bindings but I
only found a hint in the git repository that version 1.0.8 exists. I didn't
try to build it but it seems to be a quite hasty release with sill some
"0.10.11" remnants in the docs.
Did you already had a look at it? I could try to package it in the next weeks if
it's not already done.
